Abstract:

We use a projection to achieve bounds for a vector function of the eigenvalues of a positive definite matrix. For various choices of the monotonic function we are able to obtain bounds for the extremal eigenvalues in terms of the traces of the matrix and its powers. These bounds are relatively simple to compute.
